I made this photograph when I was a student at East Tennessee State University. I used to take long drives through Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina, and long walks on the Appalachian Trail (not like the former governor of South Carolina), to take photographs. This was made on a very foggy day in the spring.
I’m using it to illustrate this blog in support of the organizing thought: So Far From Where I Began.
The original impetus for this blog was to write about my 30 years in American politics. Those three decades, however, don’t define me any more than my time growing up on the farm or my youth as a journalist. I want to share my photographs, my stories and my thoughts.
